My children rarely need additional help from me with schoolwork because they have received sufficient instruction in class. But, in case they do, the school website has links to several resources for us to use.
Some afternoons are shorter while others are longer. It just depends on how my children are handling the current unit. Most days though, homework is done within an hour after school and I feel that's an acceptable amount of time.
My three children have all had great teachers and experiences for the past four years. The whole staff truly cares about the students and provides a positive & safe learning environment. They are truly excellent!
